MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book has commendable empirical coverage, comprising data from Early Modern English as well as other Germanic languages. The review and critique of previous work on imperatives is thorough and extensive, and the proposed analysis raises many interesting questions that any theoretical framwork would have to address. It makes a valuable contribution, not only to the area of imperatives but also to the area of clause structure in general!' - Chung-hye Han, English Language and Linguistics
